BC SPCA wants your best nature pictures for annual fundraiser

Take your best shot

Snap happy nature lovers are being invited to give the BC SPCA their best shot.

People can submit their best critter pictures to the annual wildlife photo contest until July 31.

Funds raised go towards food and medical care of wildlife in need at the BC SPCA's Wild ARC, which cares for more than 3,000 injured and orphaned wild animals a year.

Submitted photos could also be featured on BC SPCA merchandise, education brochures, advocacy campaigns, facebook posts, posters, web pages, and more.

In addition to the judge's picks, participants can donate-to-vote for their favourite entries and there is no limit to how many times a person can vote.

The contest encourages British Columbians to explore green spaces, roadsides, beaches and even backyards to find striking images that represent the resiliency of local wildlife living at the interface with humans.

Photographs will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit.

First prize - one photo from each category - will be published in a future issue of AnimalSense magazine, plus winners will receive a gift item.

First, second and third prizes will be featured on a pack of greeting cards available for purchase after the close of the contest.

The photo with the most votes will be awarded the People's Choice Award. The top 12 photos with the most votes will be featured on an exclusive pack of greeting cards. Winners will receive a complementary pack of cards, and additional decks will be available for purchase.
